It's starting to look that way. It's looking like the Lakers are making moves like they did when they got Shaq. When everything 1st took place with Vlade, everyone was like what the F@&*! It made you wonder, what are these guys thinking, how could they be so sure Shaq would come, well we all know he did. I smell the same thing with Gary here. We got pf locked up with Slava, Walton, Cook.....may or may not re-sign Horry & Madsen. Looks like the big ticket will be GP. If this happens, Kobe's announcement tonight will mean nothing. There will be no way he leaves with GP in town. By the way, Shaq just got called out by Kobe with that announcement tonight. These guys are going to be ready next year, cant wait!!!!
